Euro 2020: England Beat Denmark, Zoom Into Final

 

England will play in their first international event final in 55 years after coming from behind to defeat Denmark 2-1 in extra time in front of a raucous 65,000-strong crowd at Wembley on Wednesday.

England advanced to the Euro 2020 final against Italy thanks to Harry Kane’s extra-time goal against a shattered Denmark on Wednesday. It was England’s first major tournament final since the 1966 World Cup.

 

After Kasper Schmeichel saved his contentious penalty in the 104th minute in front of nearly 65,000 people at Wembley, Kane scored the follow-up.

 

Mikkel Damsgaard’s fantastic free-kick gave Denmark a 30th-minute lead, but an own goal from Simon Kjaer brought England level before half-time, and their tired opponents gradually faded as a force.

 

Denmark’s fairytale run to the semi-finals, the farthest they have progressed in a tournament since winning Euro 92, comes to an end with defeat.
